But cause Android is crap OS full of bugs and issues that's why American doesn't like it and not only American lot of nationality didn't like Android for a lot of reason . Weak up
The day the carriers STOP the subsidies (for phones) is the day the REAL market sentiments would come out. Will consumers around the world pay US$ 600-800 every two years to update mobiles then? I think not. Till that time, it is inconclusive for either of the mobiles OSs, IMHO.

Anonymous, 05 Apr 2013It seems like Microsoft market is also rising I'd love to see Microsoft on the top cuz it dese... moreI wouldn't say 0.2% is rising, that's just noise. Microshaft deserve nothing accept a slow and painful death just like dumb Nokia. If it was any good people would but Samsung or HTC MS 8 mobiles. But they don't so it proves MS is doomed especially as nobody in the US really likes Nokia anyway, For most of that part MS had always produced garbage buggy SW.
BTW MS habe been trying to gain a foothold in the mobile OS market for over 10 years, actually before Symbian started.
Most americans buy Apple products only from a patriotic standpoint because they want to show others how patriotic they really are by sustaining an american company over a foreign one, but what's patriotic into buying some products that are entirely made in China ? ROTFL
Americans do this all the time like buying an ugly Ford car over a beautiful Volkswagen, Audi or BMW just to show others how big patriots they really are.
Or how they like american football over real football just because is american, pretty dumb stuff nowadays. LOL
who says android is cheap android isn't a phone its an os yeah they have low end phones and that low end phone is cheap does apple make a low end device like other phone brand they make mid range but pricey and xperia z and htc one are pricey than iphone5 and do you know vertu phones its an android os and its the priciest of the brand i know research first before commenting OK nuff said.
darksantacruz, 05 Apr 2013Cheap?!!! Do you know the prices on SGS3, SGS4, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z,etc...? Please give me ... moreexactly because that's their cost those are premium phones the money your paying for then is worth it, unlike the iphone that you pay 600 to 1000 dollars and you get a 200 dollar cost phone.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2013android is cheap because that's the real cost of the phone, unlike iphone that cost about 150 ... moreCheap?!!! Do you know the prices on SGS3, SGS4, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z,etc...? Please give me a break!

Duel, 05 Apr 2013"75% of smartphones in the world run android. so what does that tell you." Most a... moreandroid is cheap because that's the real cost of the phone, unlike iphone that cost about 150 dollars but apple sells it to the fanboys for ten times the price just because apple knows that their loyal fanboys are gonna buy it just cause the apple logo.
I foresee this ... as i said... 2 years for android to fix lag and bug free, when S2 released, but Nooo they refuse to fix the lag and bugs, but focus on eye candy effect... and hope that hardware can patch the lag.
JB Project butter is the biggest joke of all.. it does not fix the lag touch response.. nor did it make much improvement in animation in low end 2012 or high end 2011 phones.
See this is the result.. all those ios users who tested the buggy S2/S3 is going back to iphones.
I knew it black berry is still number 3 not ugli limited WP!!!
lol symbian has 0.5% still. here in my country though (afghanistan) symbian still has the highest smartphone market share.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2013The iPhone 5 does everything that the average user will want it to do. That is still a hell of... moremy none touch screen symbian phone got more useful basic features for average user than iphone to be honest.

Regarding this never ending Android vs iOS:
Had balckberry for 2 years, bought iPhone 4 - was stolen after 2 months :) So, went for the Galaxy S2, and 1.5 years always something was wrong, battery life - you never know when it will dead, apps crashing, email - unless you are with gmail, its useless, always something not working as it supposed. Tried 4-5 email clients - same things. Now, bought iPhone 5 - yes, it is not flexible, no widgets and so on, but after 1 month like it more and more. Everything works, simple to use, email working as i need and so on.
I'm not apple or google hater, i dont care - just this phone works well for me, android not. dot.
America is not whole world,and i don't understand why is relevant what's in america important!?
